Summer and Smoke

Summer and Smoke: Written by Tennessee Williams. Set in Glorious Hill, Mississippi at the turn of the 20th century, Summer and Smoke follows a romance that was never meant to be. Alma Winemiller is the puritanical daughter of a minister, and John Buchanan, Jr. is the undisciplined young doctor who grew up next door. A romance develops between the two, but Alma’s idealism prevents the two of them from being together. As the years go by however, John and Alma trade places philosophically as John settles down with a younger, more modest girl, while Alma rejects her former idealistic values. Alma is then left to realize that it is far too late for them to ever be together.
